Why I Love The Gym Scale

If you read my previous blog about why you should ignore the scale and just work out, well, I’m a total hypocrite and still weigh myself. BUT, I am weighing myself less often, and trying to not focus on that number being the be-all and end-all of my fitness journey. Besides, I’m female, I’m allowed to be fickle, isn’t that a thing? So here are the three reasons that I love the scale at my gym:
  1. It’s old school. Not quite the one where you have to slide the thing at the top, but it isn’t digital, which is a big improvement over the scale that I have at home, where a sudden violent exhale could change your weight.

It doesn’t stare at me while I’m putting on make-up or brushing my teeth. 3. The numbers are very small. Especially because I don’t wear my glasses to the gym, these numbers are pretty far away and fuzzy, and the little red hand could be pointing to any range of numbers.

It’s much better than obsessing over a specific number, so now, I will just try to lower my weight range. Want more of my self-realizations? Click here.
